Welcome to KB4L

We thought you may want to know more about us and why we do what we do.

Have you ever had a moment in time that is so life changing?  It could be winning the big game, getting a car or a job, or a cute  and cuddly puppy.  Many things can form and shape our lives.  

On April 6, 2012, our family had one such moment.  We received a call from Barnes Hospital that there had been an accident and that we needed to come to the hospital.  I will not go into what was going through our heads and hearts at that time, that is for another time.  What I can tell you is that our daughter, Kaitlin was gone.  Kaitlin was an organ donor and we honored that wish.

That simple selfless act has opened a new chapter in our lives and the lives of Kaitlin’s friends.  A simple desire to remember and honor our daughter, sister, family and friend; has become something bigger and far better than we could have thought.  We have met so many wonderful people on this journey.  Donor and recipient families share a bond that is very special.

As we prepare for the 7th annual Kaitlin’s Benefit For Life, we want to bring you with us behind the scenes and share this time with you.  This is a journey that will surprise you.  Thank you for coming!

We’ll see you on April 20!
